Granny’s Funeral (Adieu Berthe, l'enterrement de mm) by Bruno Podalyds (France, 2012, 95 min.). Armand (director Podalyds’ brother and co-writer Denis) is in the middle of a divorce when his grandmother passes away and is left to deal with the funeral arrangements. Armand seeks the advice of two funeral directors. One is tech-savvy and has a flair for the dramatic, while the other specializes in pets, but their easygoing style suits Armand’s personality. Despite the morbid circumstances, the Poldalyds’ script is filled with quick-witted and situational humor balanced with touches of sincere and serious emotions. This black comedy received a Csar nomination for Best Original Screenplay.
